Edit Posted Documents

Sometimes you have to update a posted document because information that is relevant to the document has changed. On a posted sales document, this can be the shipping agent's package tracking number, for example. On a posted purchase document, this can be a payment reference text.

You perform the change on an editable version of the original document, indicated by "- Update" in the page title. The page contains a subset of the fields on the original document, of which some are non-editable fields that are shown for information only.

The functionality is available for the following documents in all country versions:

  • Posted Sales Shipment
  • Posted Purchase Invoice
  • Posted Return Shipment
  • Posted Return Receipt

The following additional documents can be edited in selected country versions:

  • ES: Posted Sales Invoice, Posted Sales Credit Memo, Posted Purchase Credit Memo
  • APAC: Posted Sales Credit Memo, Posted Purchase Credit Memo
  • RU: Posted Sales Credit Memo
  • IT: Posted Transfer Shipment, Posted Service Shipment
